Hysterectomy is now last option in modern science too; after many
having lost their lives on surgery table. Of course this state of
affacirs was 20 years ago. Colon and uterus are seats of "Prana" the
life force which keeps us alive, forms new cells after surgery and
drives our breath. Hysterectomy is seen to disturb the balance of
hormones, causing obesity and other post-menopause symptoms later.
e.g. one woman aged 44, put up 7 kg in just 4 months, and now
suffering from total lack of sensation in pelvic area, constant
fatigue and inflamations in calf muscle, thighs etc.
Nowadays a number of women suffer from formation of fibroids.
The fibroids can be dissolved by Yoga, diet and lifestyle. This is indeed very
encouraging addition to present Ayurvedic knowledge.
According to Acharya Bhavprakash, Aloe Vera dissolves the tumors
like fibroids. Hence in problems like uterian tumors: fibroids,
ovarian cysts, the formulations of Aloe Vera become useful. In
moderate and simple fibroids/cysts (less than 10 mm size),
Kumari Aasav alone 15 ml with equal warm water after meals should be
taken for three months and then check can be performed. While MD will
detect using sonogram, the experienced Vaidyas can judge
the progress by manual checks. Ayurveda did not have any complex
testing required by modern medical science. The hardness of the organ
to the touch and other symptoms were used to diagnose most complex
The wide specturm of action of aloe vera is already discussed in many
other posts, including one by this author. The Aloe Vera also acts on
liver, spleen and enliven their function
to higher efficiency. Increased hunger, digestion are first results
to be seen. Increased efficiency of large intestines including colon
aids the excreation process, relieving the patient from constipation.
Some Vaidyas from Amritsar and Surat (in India) prepare a pickle of
Aloe Vera to give to Anorexia patients. Those who can not obtain
Kumari Aasav, Aloe vera pulp can be taken along with 1/4 tsp turmeric
powder and a pinch or two saindhav salt, early morning empty stomach.
Kanchnar Guggulu, 2 Tabs each 250 mg, slight chew and swallow after
meals is also a helpful suggestion. If you decide to take "ayurvedic" route, do it under supervision, as more tuned and focussed protocol can be formulated.
For both fibroids and painful/irregular menses, Apan Vata management
can be done by following naturopathy aid. In 'NO Medicine' approach,
this can be tried, but long time is needed to balance the Vata.
Use castor oil or Arka oil. Light massage on below navel area. Put a
thin butter paper over this area. Lie down. Cover the area with
heating pad or sea salt bag previously heated over hot plate, and let
temperature be what you can easily bear, without
discomfort. Enjoy heat for about 30 minutes daily, preferably on
empty stomach. Along with this, some patients will need cold hip bath also interspersed in this fomentation program.
One patient of the author used this method to get rid of fibroids
totally (upto 2 cms size). She used "Christian science" or faith healing simultaneously, which also may have contributed equally.
Endometrial ablation in modern science may be the modernised version of this old technique.
